Introducing: the coolest Brooklyn watch brand on the market

After seven years of development, the perfect entry-level watch is here...

When Neil Carpenter, founder and designer of achingly cool Brooklyn watch brand, Carpenter Watches, first thought about what he wanted out of his brand, his idea was simple: to create a perfect, entry-level automatic watch.

After seven years of development, which Carpenter managed whilst maintaining his day job as an industrial designer, the brand launched earlier this year. The underlying promise has remained the same, helping Carpenter Watches to become the brand for first-time buyers. It fully delivers on the underlying features that set it apart from a heavily saturated market, showcasing 3 limited edition, aviation inspired pieces that can be worn as easily for everyday as they can for a special occasion.

Each of the three models is slightly different in design, and are named the M1, M2 and M3 Brooklyn Field – each with a genuine leather strap. Whether you go for the black or cream face, and whether you choose the brass or the stainless steel case, you know that you’re buying into pure quality. Each watch uses the same date complication, a 40+ hour power reserve and has a 40mm case with a sapphire display exhibition at the back.

These pieces aren’t made for the masses; they are completely limited edition and so far, sales have been successful. The price point is a huge part of what sets Carpenter apart from the crowd; and not only the pieces are accessible in terms of their cost, they’re also hugely stylish and incredibly functional.

So, gentlemen, whether you’re looking to make a first-time investment, or whether this is another timepiece that will go into your giant collection of horology, you can trust us when he say that Carpenter truly is a brand worth buying into.
